Export Kodi Interface on another Display

Hi All,

I have the following problem. I have my Raspberry + HDD near my TV and connected to it via HDMI.
Sometime happen that I need to check something on Kodi but I cannot use TV and remote control because, for example, my wife or my kids are watching TV.

I would like to know if there is a way to redirect the interface on my Windows machine (like for example you can export a Linux display on another machine).

I know I should have a X server on my windows machine.
Connect to Raspberry via putty with SSH forwarding.
But I read that X is not installed by default on Raspberry.

What is the easiest way to do that?

I suggest VNC server.


Thank you for reply. The guide is very good. The only question is why I need to do port forward? My PC and Raspberry are on the same local network.

Some people might have a problem using port = 0; in the above config file.
If you have problems as well, then change that line to port = 5900;
You’ll have to use this guide for your router: http://portforward.com/english/applications/port_forwarding/RealVNC/default.htm77
to port forward port 5900 to your pi’s local ip address. If you enable
port 5900 then make sure you have set a static ip on your pi’s network

You do not and should not Portforward anything.
Just install the VNCserver and point your vncviewer to the local IP

Ok, thanks.
